Thanks to a childhood filled with repeated viewings of The Parent Trap and more copies of the Sweet Valley High books than we care to own up to, we’ve always been obsessed twins. That’s why we were so excited to come across Maria Zarazua’s work over PetaPixel; the Spanish photographer’s Parte de ti (“Part of you”) series captures pairs of identical twins and seeks to highlight the subtle differences between them that are there, but often overlooked.
“I’m interested by the small worlds of two different human beings that look like one — as if one was was the other one’s reflection — not only because of their looks but the relationship that ties them together,” Zarazua writes. “This project is some sort of alteration of Narcissus’s myth, the twin as a mirror (deforming/deformed) of oneself where you partially recognize yourself and you don’t completely end up liking what you see.” Click through to check out the images, and let us know what you think of the concept in the comments.
